President Tran Dai Quang.



In a brief interview granted to Vietnam News Agency reporters, he said being elected to the Presidency is a great honour and responsibility. The experience of his predecessor Truong Tan Sang and other former State leaders will be invaluable to him in realising the tasks assigned by the Party, the National Assembly and the people.

Quang said he will apply himself to fine-tuning the legal system to constitutionalise the Resolution of the 12th National Party Congress and the amended 2013 Constitution, and also in improving the effectiveness of the State management.

He will steer the building of regular, elite and modern people’s revolutionary armed forces, so as to firmly safeguard the country’s independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity, along with political stability and peace for national development.

The new leader added that he will work with, and ask the Politburo and the National Assembly (NA) to detail the duties of the Commander of the people’s armed forces, and the organisation and operations of the Council for National Defence and Security, as suggested by Truong Tan Sang at the ongoing 11th meeting of the 13th NA.

He will also bolster the implementation of the consistent foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, peace, cooperation and development; proactive and active international integration; and ensuring a peaceful and stable environment while optimising external resources to develop the country.

Another focus in his tenure is to press ahead with judicial reforms, thus ensuring pure, strong, democratic and strict justice and the protection of human rights, Quang noted.

The President will also actively coordinate with the Vietnam Fatherland Front and its member organisations, to better people’s living standards, protect the rights and legitimate interests of Vietnamese expatriates, enhance democracy and strengthen national unity.

He added that he hopes Vietnamese people living in the country, and around the world, will join hands in upholding patriotism, grasp opportunities and weather challenges to secure and build a prosperous Vietnam.

Tran Dai Quang, 60, who is a Politburo member and the Minister of Public Security, was elected to the Presidency on April 2.
